Watson’s a top 5 qb. Do you agree?

    I didn't get to see the game today. I'm visiting my son in Connecticut.

    There were receivers open in the middle of the field last game too and the Charges game too. Sometimes Watson sees them, sometime s he doesn't. It's a learning curve that isn't going to be sped up, whether you want to admit this or not.

    I'm hoping he learns, because it will be much more fun out at NRG when he does

    You listen to him in that video and after last week's loss break down the defenses and then you read a post from a poster who struggles with attachments on an internet forum smear him by calling him stupid is just out of bounds.

    Honest question, did the offense look similar to the one they ran the 1st 7 games? If so, what happened today really doesn't surprise me. BOB finally ran the offense Watson is most comfortable in.

    Missing 3 long plays last week is hardly expecting Watson to be perfect.

    It was 2 and I have watched Aaron Rogers miss 2 so far in today's game vs Dallas. It happens. You cannot expect him to nail every throw every game.

    They ran a pro style offense with good route combos. It was that simple

    The learning curve/timeline hasn't changed, despite my lack of technology knowledge.

    Continue on.

    It was 3 plays/2 missed TD's.

    The difference is Watson looked at the middle of the field this week apparently if OB didn't change up the offense. It's open every week. Against the Chargers and apparently today he used the entire field.

    Honestly it was the now 1-4 falcons. He looked good. Made good throws. Some guys wide open. It was a get right game with no pressure literally. No sacks and in control.

    This game played into Houston hands.

    Can't put the bottle down, I'm trying to get prepared for your next 247 posts this week about how bad everyone but O'Brien is and how our moron accidentally had success in his epic system. With a token disagreeing post of course.

    I thought your prediction was that Watson would get hurt if they didn't use the ep system of obrien

    I understand KC's defense isn't all that against the pass either.

    Fact is as Watson goes so goes this team. If he's off, the Texans suck. If he's hot, they can be unstoppable.

    I thought Watson was going to save the franchise but McNair was too cheap to protect him.

    Right, they're not great but not terrible either. Middle of the pack so far.

    And ya to the last part. We've got 3 games to 2 now to show for it.

    I also learned last week that Watson is inaccurate and can't throw guys open

    Last week he missed two throws. Really bad. Throwing guys open?Watch mahommes. Throwing guys open in KC leads to TDs.

    This thread is so silly.

    i learned this week he went 28 of 33 for 426 yards. I think your teachers need some work.

    It's ok that mahomes is the sh1t fellas. Last year he was the sh1t and brady got him. Admitting mahomes is a bad ass isnt turning your back of Watson. Brady will beat Watson too
